The ground and area are beautiful. The lodge wasn't anything to go back to visit with so many other options. The air struggled to stay cool overnight (loud all night from turning on and off), and the room (and lodge) looked like it could benefit from a makeover. It would be so nice to have a mini fridge in the... More

We will certainly get the mowing in better shape at the campground. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. The bathhouse looks a little rough right now because we are in the middle of painting it. I think you will find it much more attractive very soon! More

First of all Kentucky Lake is a beautiful place. We took the kids, grand kids, ski boat and fishing boat. We rented a slip at the marina for two nights for both boats. The marina is nice, the food was good there and the people that run the place are nice. The guys on the dock that get your gas... More

I am very happy to hear you and your family enjoyed the pool, restaurant, and your cabin. As you pointed out however the true star is Kentucky Lake. It is simply beautiful and there are fishing opportunities for every category of angler. More

I am sorry I only had one night to visit this beautiful resort property. The hotel is nice and has so many amenities-too many to list. The beds were extremely comfortable and the towels were thick and absorbant. So many hotels offer thread bare towels and 180 count sheets so the extra plush linens add so much to a good... More

Thank you for the terrific comments! We recently upgraded with new mattresses. Our linen in the hotel has also been upgraded to a modern triple sheeting style. We are very pleased with the results as it offers an excellent clean comfortable lodging experience to our guests. More

We booked two nights in one of the cottages. We came primarily to fish and relax. The cottage was very clean and peaceful and the lake was beautiful. We had a great time and can not wait to come back!

We were passing through and booked two nights. At first glance the park is pretty. Then we got to the campsites. * Campground asphalt roads are crumbling as are campsite pads. * Erosion has taken its toll throughout, making deep chasm drop-offs all around the roads and RV pads, which are narrow to begin with. Drop offs on each side... More

There are definitely issues at the campground that need to be addressed. We are currently seeking long term solutions to many of these same issues. The sites are small as they were designed in a different area when the typical camping rig was much smaller. We do have a few sites that lend well larger campers. Additional staffing will be...

We came to the area specifically for the Eagle Watch weekend. Bald eagles live in this area, some year round, some seasonally. The best time for viewing is in the winter time when there are a maximum number of birds and there are no leaves on the trees so their nests are easier to spot. There is an orientation on... More

Thank you for your recent stay and review of our Eagle’s weekend. You made a very good point regarding the proximity of the birds to the boat. They are wild and free and don’t always cooperate so it is a good idea to have good optics. However, I have seen them get so close you would think that they were... More
